    I tried to do a search but must not be typing in the right thing.

    What I want to know is when you start counting your DPO. Is it the day after your first + surge? Or does it start after your surge has disappeared?

    I would also like some clarification. On my fertility friend Calendar is suggests my day of Ovulation is today...currently I do not have a positive surge. I had my first pos surge on Mon night.

    Advice please!

    LH surges 24-48 hours before ovulation and can drop immediately afterwards (which is why you got a positive and then a negative the next day). Contrary to what many believe, it does not likely stay positive through your O time. It peaks just before O. If you got your surge Mon and your bbt rose afterwards, it is likely & possible that you ovulated Wed. Thurs seems a bit on the later side, but isn't impossible.

    Hope this helps! good luck!

    Oh, and you count DPO, starting the first day after you O - if FF says you O'd today, tomorrow is your 1st DPO.
